Holofone Is A 7-inch Phablet With A Tell-Tale Bump On The Back


A Chinese smartphone company Akyumen, that has launched their new smartphone called “Holofone” which was first unveiled at MWC 2016 earlier this year goes on sale in the US from September 1.

Beginning with the exterior, the Holofone more than lives up to its name by featuring a 7-inch screen, 1,920 x 1,080 resolution display. You will definitely look silly with such a massive phone on the side of your head when making calls, but at least you will have plenty of room to watch movies and play games.


The Akyumen Holofone comes with 4 Gigabytes of RAM and it is powered by an Intel Cherry Trail Z8300 Quad-core processor. It has a 128GB internal memory which is expandable through a MicroSD card. One of the eye-catching features of the new Akyumen Holofone is that it runs both Windows 10 and Android operating systems in a dual-boot configuration. It also runs a full 64-bit version of Windows 10 and Android 5.1 Lollipop. It also has a decent 7-inch 1080 pixel screen with a built-in 35-lumen projector.

Talking about the cameras, a 5-megapixel sensor is found around front, while the 13-megapixel main camera features what Akyumen calls “super slow motion technology.” Meanwhile, the 3,500mAh battery pack promises to provide two hours of continuous projector use. Finally, the Holofone features 4G LTE connectivity and USB Type-C support.

The Akyumen Holofone will be available on pre-orders on September 1, 2016. The smartphone only costs $750. But if you buy it with the bundle that includes additional accessories like a Bluetooth speaker, game controller and a stand for the battery, you need to shell-out $950.
